You can do this sitting or standing and if you like you can bring some light hand weights for some extra toning.

All youth from middle through high school age are welcome to come and share a combination of fun, fellowship, food and a foundation in the essentials of a Christian Faith.

RESTORE. RESTORE served 506 families during the month of July—which is an increase of 100 families over a year ago. As August numbers are counted, we are expecting a similar increase in our client base. We are thankful and blessed to be able to meet the needs of our community! Volunteer opportunities for both the thrift store and food pantry are available. Any support is much needed and appreciated. RESTORE is planning its next yard sale for Saturday, October 26th. Proceeds from that sales will go toward providing a Thanksgiving dinner for pantry patrons.
